Collect your motorhome and get yourself up to the Linlithgow area ready for a full five days of Outlander heaven!
Overnight in the South Queensferry area
From Midhope head along the coast to visit Blackness Castle – you may recognise it as Wentworth Prison where Jamie is tortured in Season 1. Known as “the ship that never sailed” Blackness is a fascinating visit. From here it’s a short drive to Linlithgow Palace, birthplace in 1542 of Mary, Queen of Scots. The beautiful fountain in the palace courtyard was said to have run with red wine during the visit of Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745! The entrance was used during filming to recreate Wentworth Prison where Jamie is incarcerated.

Start the day heading west through the Trossachs to Loch Katrine. This is a beautiful part of the world, and Loch Katrine was used as a location in Season 2. Here you can sail on the loch on board the steamship the SS Sir Walter Scott. Drive on over the Duke’s Pass, with stunning views over the surrounding countryside, to Aberfeldy and from there return towards Callander. You continue on to Stirling where you can visit the impressive fortress of Stirling Castle, a favourite of the Stuart kings, besieged by the Jacobite Army not long before the Battle of Culloden in 1746.
